'Thriller' inmates dance to Queen

Posted on

The famed “dancing inmates” of Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center in Cebu, Philippines, have a new routine, this time to a Queen medley (that also includes “Mr. Roboto,” which is Styx, but okay).

The “Thriller” video set the bar pretty high for these dances — though I’m partial to the weird dissonance of “Holding Out for a Hero” — so I can’t see this Queen arrangement taking a place among the all-time YouTube hits, but who knows. Is this destined to be a viral classic, PopWatchers?
